The goal of CIR’s Edge Computing Infrastructure Market report is to forecast where the revenues and volume shipments will be generated from edge computing over the next five years. In order to achieve this goal we define the key products that will be sold due to the edge computing surge. The edge products that are covered in this report include but are not limited to: edge gateways, edge servers, edge routers, dedicated edge networking software, edge networking hardware and components including transceivers, security software, edge networking analytics software, etc. The report also forecasts revenues for services associated with edge computing including edge computing functionality delivered as a service. Finally, the report will discuss the transceiver rates that will be necessary in the edge computing environment.
In the Edge Computing Infrastructure Market report, we also (1) monetize the impact of edge computing on cloud and data center markets, and (2) discuss the impact of edge computing on the optical networking/optical module space. While the report does not provide an in depth applications (e.g. gaming, smart cities) analysis (addressed in other future CIR reports), it does discuss – and forecast – revenues generated by specific edge computing environments, edge clouds, 5G mobile and for Internet-of-Things.(IoT).
In addition to an analysis of the hardware, software and services related to edge computing, this report also contains strategic profiles of leading vendors and startups active in the edge computing space. In these profiles we discuss the product/market strategies employed by companies targeting the Edge Computing Infrastructure Market. This report is designed to guide business development executives, product managers, investors and others to recognize key opportunity areas in the edge computing market.
